MUD CREEK (Bowie County). Mud Creek rises 8½ miles northwest of DeKalb in northwestern Bowie County (at 33°35' N, 94°44' W) and runs southeast to a point just above DeKalb, then turns and runs northeast to its mouth (at 33°34' N, 94°25' W) on the Red River, 7½ miles north of New Boston. The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses pastures and fields surfaced by loam that supports heavily wooded areas of post oak, blackjack oak, and elm. A large variety of crops is grown in the area.
